The newly hair-styled Victoria Beckham and husband David have been keeping a dirty little beauty secret. They both use and swear by a cream that contains bird poo! A devoted follower of fashion with a model figure, Victoria has gained our sympathy recently partly because of her well-publicised battle with her complexion over the years.
Now, it seems that Posh is crediting her new clear skin to a supposed miracle beauty ingredient; nightingale poo. The 34 year old has been going for £100 Geisha Facials from Japan which use a paste made from bird droppings to help combat acne and general blemishes on the skin.
A friend of the Beckhams told Closer magazine, "When Victoria was in Japan recently she was admiring the local women’s clear skin and discovered that it stemmed from these facials. She was intrigued and when she got back to the US she found that some New York beauty salons now offer the treatment. She tried it and loved how great her skin looked."
The friend added, "Victoria also uses a cream derived from nightingale poo at home." The magazine also reports that David also uses a moisturising poo mask before bed. This is definitely one meaning of the phrase playing dirty. Still, Victoria's skin has never looked better, so maybe there is something in it after all.
